The Burlington Canal Piers support essential commercial marine traffic entering and exiting Hamilton Harbour. The identification of safety risks applicable to the operation of commercial marine facilities is an ongoing function for the department. The Burlington Canal Piers were not designed for recreational use, and their open design could pose safety risks due to high wave action and ice build-up.
Transport Canada takes the concerns voiced by the Burlington and Hamilton community seriously. Transport Canada continues to work with key stakeholders such as the Cities of Burlington and Hamilton in evaluating options that will allow for the possible recreational use of the Piers. An approach is currently being discussed with the City of Hamilton and the City of Burlington that would enable recreational use to continue, and Transport Canada looks forward to continue working together to explore this option.
